Pretty cool to think that most of the folks that live in Whittier call this their home. The building seems to be in decent condition and provides a safe place for them to live.

First off, June, the manager, was awesome. This was a very interesting place to stay. The first 12 stories of this building are home to about 80% of the town of Whittier with the top two stories rented out to tourists. Each condo is fully...More
